November 15, 2010


Get it? Wilding. Yeah, it´s not THAT funny. But anyway, she´s gone and I´m sad--she was a really great companion. Hna. Wilding and I worked really well together but I guess now it´s time for me to grow up and have an hija. I´m excited to train. Yes, I know who I´m training, but I can´t tell until next week in case Mom lets it slip to her parents and then they tell her when they talk to her in the airport and then it will just ruin the awesome slideshow President does with the newbies. So my hijita will find out who I am on Wednesday and the rest of you will get to know next Monday! I´m sure the suspense is killing you.
So this week Hna. Wilding did a lot of despediring (saying goodbye...there´s a little bit of Spanglish for you) but we still got a few good lessons and Aurelia and Solange came to church! Aurelia has a baptismal date for Sunday, but she still needs to stop smoking. Solange really loves everything, but still needs to get baptized. The greatest thing about them, though, is Luisana. Solange´s 2-year-old daughter who calls us "nana" (her way of saying "hermana"). She´s so cute and she loves the nursery and we´re just so excited for their whole family! They are great and we love them a lot.
I´ve been getting ready this week to talk to everyone all the time...because I´m not sure how much Spanish my companion will know :) Probably not a lot, because President told me I should learn Spanish really fast... dangit.
Speaking of President, we had zone conference on Friday and it was amazing. He talked a lot about Elder Christofferson´s "Living a Consecrated Life" talk and we talked about how we are working to build temples here in Argentina. He showed a map of the mission with "Temple of..." over each city. I thought, "But Tandil is tiny, how could they ever get enough members for a temple?" But then I remembered that it´s twice as big as Idaho Falls and almost 4 times as big as Provo, and they both have temples! But a Bahía temple could totally happen within the next 10 years and that would be AMAZING and it would be so great for the future missionaries and the members here... I love zone conference so much and the mission president and his wife are great. I want mom and dad to be able to meet them some day... they´re learning English! They will TOTALLY be able to talk to you next August. :)
So now I´m just hanging out with Hna. Tingey today until Wednesday morning until we get our hijas! This work is so great and I´m so happy to be here! I love you all!

P.S. Hna. Tingey and I totally taught a German nun about the restoration this morning in the street... it was AWESOME.
